First time at Skippers. Went in for lunch and drinks. Bar staff following covid rules and tables spread out.

The foods we ordered was very good and large portions. Showing sports on the TVs around the bar. I would definitely return again.

So so

While the place was clean and the staff polite, the bottled beer was warm. I would normally expect an Orkney bar to sell the local product at an appropriate temperature.

Seafood Platter
Feb 2020 • Business
Regular visitor to Skippers and the Kirkwall Hotel through work. Just needed to comment on the food as it's always good. The two things that cannot be beaten anywhere is firstly their seafood Platter. Which is fresh and tastes fabulous every time and is prepared and presented to perfection. Secondly their gravy which is out of this world I would have it with everything (except the platter 😁).

Always sports on in the background and plenty of visitors/locals. If your in Orkney well worth dropping in.

Great pub and food, but too many TVs
Nov 2019
Visited twice, once at Sunday lunchtime and also for an evening meal. Beer was excellent quality and the BLT was probably the best I’ve ever eaten, with plentiful and thick rashers. The pie was rich and meaty, but a spoon would have helped to finish the last drops of gravy

Found this pub, in search of a lighter meal and a drink.
Ended up with splitting a fish and chips, plus one drink each, all very satisfactory!
Great place !

Should I stay or should I go. I stayed and I'm glad I did

Called in for some food based on the menu outside. Greeted nicely when entering. Was advised of a lengthy wait due to a large party in the main restaurant. So it was my choice to stay or go. We chose to stay. Bar staff were lovely and attentive. Drinks were fine. And if that was a long wait what could they do for fast food!! The food was really nice, good quality and plenty of it. The seafood platter was fantastic. Easy to recommend to others.

Popped in for something to eat and drink after returning from a long day on Hoy......
The atmosphere was O.K. with lots of sports TVs around.
The service was matter-of-fact and efficient.
The food was fresh and served quickly.
Tasty but nothing very special.
We shared some crispy cheese fingers as a starter and then took fish & chips and the catch-of-the-day.
The accompanying beers were good.
Nice place on the harbour front.
Nice Food!! Good Value!!

Drink and a bite
Sep 2017 • Couples
Liked this bar. I would describe it as a sports bar, loads o big TV's ! Had a few excellent pints of Herenveen and the food was very good. Staff we saw were very good also. We were there on a Tuesday night, would think this is a very busy bar at the weekend. Will go back tho.
